COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blanche du Paradis is a Belgian-style Wit brewed with coriander seeds and Curaçao orange peels, the spices traditionnally found in this classic style. Unfiltered and containing almost as much raw wheat as malted barley, it presents a veil of yeast and proteins giving this style its "Blanche" name. Round and light at the same time, it exhales fresh baked bread aromas, and reveals spices and citrus flavours, accompanied by subtle notes of acidity coming from the wheat.

Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. The aroma has cream, pale smooth wheat, banana, orange and heavy coriander. It has a light crisp clean body with soft carbonation and a smooth finish. The flavor starts clean and spicy with light orange, crisp wheat and lots of coriander. The finish is very dry for the style and has some phenolic spices and sulfur. Very refreshing and enjoyable.
